The show has been in steady decline for at least 3 years. They have nothing left, the current writers suck, and they should have gone out on top. Instead, they leave us with crap like last night. You are lucky if you get a chuckle out of the Simpsons anymore. I think the major problem is that they are getting way too preachy on social issues, mainly ones against Republicans. How many Fox News jokes can they do? I swear to God, there is one every episode. Yeah, we get it, we figured it out by ourselves a long time ago that they lean conservative, you can stop force feeding it to us and calling it humor. And then the Passion of the Christ part was just unbelievably stupid.
